Very good candids, Ray!
Ray: Thank you, Elizabeth. It seems there is a different lifestyle on railway station platforms than on street footpaths...less urgency, less stress...

All just part of everyday life out there..
Ray: Most folks in Yangon do not have private transport, so the train would be their only means of travelling further than walking distance, Chris...I think this changes things somewhat.

It is always interesting to observe daily life!
Ray: I am an enthusiastic people watcher, Philine.
Those bananas look rather ripe!
Ray: Yes...a lot of SE Asia folks like their bananas properly ripe, Bill.

I'm attracted to the station buffet.
Ray: I trust you are referring to the second picture, with the platform "restaurant"...

So many slices of life...love street photography!
Ray: I suppose slow-moving train photography is quite like street photography, Bonnie, except that the footpath is moving. smile

My observation is that Platform Life is less stressful than Street Life.
Nice candid shots though the girl in red might guess you are looking at her.
Ray: Thank you, Mary. I am fairly certain she was unaware of my presence.
I'd be interested to know what the paint daubs on their faces mean.
He looks like a Michelin inspector smile
Ray: Ha Ha

That is possible, Tom!
two fine shots Ray... the train muct have been stopped at the pickup point....petersmile
Ray: It was either stopped or moving slowly, Peter. The carriage doors and windows were open, so there was no dirty glass to get in the way.
